Robust, durable and ideal for mounting bodies – the frame

The ideal frame. Robust and with holes

The Atego frame was specially designed with the demands of short-radius distribution in mind. A special feature is its two-piece design. The front section comprises two downward-sloping longitudinal members with Z-profile, which enables the front part to be lowered.

This frame offers optimum protection against rust: holes. Together with cathodic dip priming, they protect against corrosion to the Atego frame. Thanks to the 50 mm hole pattern, no further drilling is necessary when mounting any attachments and other units, such as tanks, exhaust systems and batteries. Bodies can therefore be pre-assembled and fitted in next to no time. This reduces downtime at the bodybuilder and ensures that the frame's corrosion protection is not damaged. These are the factors that maximise a truck's service life.
